Tim Holtz Dragonfly


I have just received my new Tim Holtz die with coordinating embossing folder so thought I would make a little tag today. Actually there are two as I wanted to trial embossing the dragonfly both ways - this one is actually the reverse - the other tag is yet to be finished.

Today's Menu:

Background - Salty Ocean, Gathered Twigs and Faded Jeans Distress Stains - spritzed through Tim's doily stencil. Stamped with T Holtz butterflies and script stamp.
Dragonfly - cut, embosssed and inked in various blues, browns and greens
Flower - tattered floral die cuts of some crackled card I made last week. Inked with blue archival.
Ribbon - died with peacock feathers, stormy sky and peeled paints DI's
Quote - Albert Einstein - printed on PC and mounted on mount board before stamping with woodgrain and inking up.

Today's Challenges:

Thanks for looking
